The Cinderella Project, Helping Make Proms Magic For Underprivileged Teens
You have to have a soft spot in your heart for kids (of all ages). There just seems to be so many more challenges these days to overcome. Here’s yet another that will make you think and hopefully want to help with if you can
The Cinderella Project of the Capital Region – continuing its effort to supply financially challenged area teens with donated gowns and accessories for their high school proms, totally free of charge to them – will stage its third dress-collection drive of the season this Sunday, Sept. 25, from 1:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Voorheesville Public Library (51 School Road).
Something a little different this time: This drive is being held in conjunction with a showing of the Katherine Heigl movie “27 Dresses.” Admission to the movie (which is rated PG-13) is free, and dress and accessory donations will be accepted before it, but are not required.
A Please give if you can! Remember all of the flood victims who lost belongings in the area? How can some of THESE kids go to the prom this year? Something to think about.
Here is a YouTube video I found that explains a little more about it if interested. Once you see what they do, it might drive the point home a little better!
